Norfolk: Hargham

Churchwardens' and Overseers' Payments: 1836-48

Hargham raised money at various times, to either support its poor (from the Overseers' Rate) or to pay for other parish expenses (from the Churchwardens' Rate). This rate was levied on the occupiers (who may not have owned the land) and based upon the value of the property (which was usually a rental valuation). Both occupiers and owners are found living in and outside the parish.

For more information on these records see the Parish Accounts page.


These are from a Norfolk Record Office document [with the reference PD 96/11 and microform MF 732/9] containing the Churchwardens' and Overseers' (combined) accounts book for 1836-1876.

Note that only extracts have been transcribed but this includes most items which mention surnames. Common events eg. bread/wine, some non-specific trade bills etc. have for the most part been excluded. More information can be found on the original where some names occur more than once.
